Hundreds of families have come to expect a whirlwind of surprises at the always-entertaining Carnival for a Cure, benefiting the Diabetes Research Institute. At this year’s 6th annual affair, to be held on Sunday, March 13, 2011 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Metropolitan Pavilion located at 125 W. 18th St., guests enjoyed a special appearance by Nick Jonas, who talked about life with diabetes during the program.
It was at the 2007 event that Jonas first announced to the world that he has type 1 diabetes.
“I’m looking forward to attending and sharing my story about how diabetes hasn’t slowed me down,” he wrote in a recent blog post. Jonas serves as a spokesperson for Bayer Healthcare Diabetes Care, a sponsor of the event.
